Bell Workshop- February 2nd, February 9th, and February 16th between services during the Bible study hour. If you are at all interested in joining the bell choir here at Saint Paul come learn the basics of music reading and bell ringing technique between services. The first half hour will be discussing the essentials to music reading including note names, finding (and keeping) a steady beat, and learning to read rhythms. The second half will be used to learn how to use proper technique to ring. If you’re interested in attending, email Cameron at praise@saintpaulames.org.
